No, I’m not talking about some new genetically-modified organism that will (further) fundamentally alter the corn in our tacos, the gas in our cars or the farmland of the Midwest.

    by Guest Contributor Dorothy Attakora-Gyan By now I am sure most people worldwide have heard about the October 22 shootings that took place on Parliament Hill in the nations capital in Canada. Tragically the event took the life of Cpl Nathan Cirillo, a young 24 year old father. The very fact that this fallen soldier lost his life at the National War Memorial has the nation in collective mourning. As a student residing in Ottawa, one privileged to live downtown, mere minutes and walking distance from Parliament Hill, I have witnessed the fear and uncertainly that throughout the day evolved…
  • Re-Re-Birth Of The Cool: Static Shock Gets A Shocking Online Revival

    Arturo
    22 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    By Arturo R. García Well now this is interesting. As Variety reported on Tuesday, the demand for a new Static Shock revival will finally be met, in perhaps the most unexpected of fashions: an online-only live-action series. It’s also encouraging to see the revival of Milestone Entertainment’s signature character is being led by Milestone alumni: Film and comics veteran Reginald Hudlin will be the executive producer, in collaboration with Denys Cowan, who produced the much-missed animated series that Warner Brothers stubbornly left by the wayside years ago.

    “Color is not a human or a personal reality, it is a political reality.” – James Baldwin This is not a book review, because Who We Be isn’t really a book. It’s more of a thoughtful examination of how the United States arrived at this point in racial history. Long time friend of the blog Jeff Chang is the author of the American Book award winning Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A History of the Hip Hop Generation and editor of the anthology Total Chaos: The Art and Aesthetics of Hip Hop.

    30 Oct 2014 | 8:40 am
    It’s no secret that I fucking despise the town in which I live. There is a plethora of reasons for this, which I have mentioned in previous blog posts. Today I added another reason to the list. I was in the Asda supermarket today, buying some food for the next couple of days. I hate supermarkets at the best of times, and right now is far from the best of times. I drifted through the aisles, collecting a few vegetables and getting mildly irked because everything seems prepackaged on the assumption that single people do not exist. Eventually I reached the checkout. Asda has a set of…

  • ““Tiempo de acabar el Embargo de Cuba”: It’s Time to End the Cuban Embargo

    José Cobas
    27 Oct 2014 | 12:50 pm
    TweetA recent New York Times editorial denunciated the unproductive 54-year old United States embargo against Cuba and exhorted President Obama to end it. The editorial’s publication is not remarkable because the same argument has been made before in the media. What is unusual is that a second click will take the reader to a Spanish translation. Shortly afterward Fidel Castro wrote a column in Granma, a Cuban newspaper, analyzing in detail the Times’ editorial [[l]]. The New York Times, in turn, ran an opinion page about Fidel’s column. It also appeared in…

This case not only demonstrates that two white women can sue and potentially settle for large sums of money over the racial identity of their child, but that whiteness is a commodity that puts a price tag upon a contractual agreement. Two issues are central in this suit. First, the Midwest Sperm Bank and the couple have a contractual agreement for…

    TweetImmigration—particularly undocumented immigration—continues to be an unresolved issue in America; however, it is part of the larger unresolved issue of the political and social inclusion of Latinos (as well as other visible racial and ethnic groups) in the U.S. It is an issue that will increasingly affect us all because of our changing demographics with Latinos at 16.9 percent of the population projected to be 30 percent of the population by 2050 at the latest.

    TweetI have recently taken a look at the list of the current board members of the International Sociological Association Research Committee on Labour Movements. I was convinced that the composition of the board would reflect, at least to some extent, the diversity of the global sociological community and the fact that labor movements are a global phenomenon. To my utter surprise, I immediately realized that there was not even one Black African scholar among the sixteen members of the board. And, even more strikingly, the Africa Regional Representative is a white woman from the University of…

    When are they going to give up?The city's Planning Commission on Wednesday night denied a controversial 41-unit condominium development in the woods northwest of Danbury High School. The proposal was voted down 2-1 after neighbors raised concerns that the development would increase traffic congestion and worsen the flooding of Padanaram Brook. The project by Cotswold of Danbury proposed ranch-style condominiums clustered on 20 acres of the oblong 74-acre property. The remaining 54 acres -- much of it wetlands -- was to be given to Danbury as open space. Although the plan to cluster the units…
